DMA works fine

IF YOU DON'T USE IDE-SCSI

Don't use it. Please. There's no point.

It's much more readable to do

cdrecord dev=/dev/hdc

than it is to do some stupid "scan SCSI devices" + "dev=0,1,0" or similar
totally incomprehensible crap that doesn't even work right.

Faster as in "it uses DMA for everything, so you can actually burn at full
speed without having to worry about it or sucking up CPU".
